Charleston is preparing for its exclusively adult Easter egg hunt next Friday.
Hands-on fun awaits fully grown Charleston residents, who are invited to re-experience a beloved childhood ritual between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 18, with an exclusively adult Easter egg hunt at Morton Park.
The scavenger hunt, announced recently by Eastern Illinois University, will turn up a variety of Easter eggs hidden around the park by volunteers -- specially for the occasion. This event is planned just for grown-ups, who can freely enjoy the nostalgic throwback event.
Children will not be ignored, however, as a Child Egg Scramble is planned for the following morning, March 19.
Residents are advised to dress appropriately for the weather, which could be muddy and cold.
“This is a lot of fun,” the planners said.
Participants must provide their own transportation, and all parties are instructed to meet at the park.
Citizens who wish to join in a volunteer capacity for the Adult Egg Hunt should act soon, for an EIU representative stated that only two spots are still open.
Volunteers are always welcome at events planned by the City of Charleston, which encourages civic engagement. Help is possible in a variety of ways, from advance registration to serving on an on-call list.
